How to Volunteer

The Jasper Food Bank is ran entirely by volunteers.

Food Bank Volunteering

Our “front line” volunteers help with a wide range of tasks:

  • taking or making phone calls,
  • purchasing and picking up food,
  • stocking and organizing at the food bank,
  • boxing and distributing food,
  • and dropping off deliveries.

If you’re looking to help out regularly or can only commit to a few hours every few months, we’re happy to have your help! There is a wide range of tasks for various times of day, varying days of the week. 30 minutes or 3 hours… it’s up to you!

The Jasper Food Bank Board Volunteers

Aside from the day-to-day running of the food bank, there are a number of volunteers who sit on the Jasper Food Bank Board. These Board members assist with:

  • managing the finances,
  • ensuring compliance with regulatory bodies,
  • applying for grants,
  • facilitating community partnerships,
  • advocacy,
  • education,
  • and much more!

Dedicated board members are a crucial component to the long-term success and survival of the Jasper Food Bank. If any of the above-mentioned tasks excite you, the Board would love to have you join!
